Embedded Network Interfacing

Mil-Aero & Defense Systems Require Reliable Rugged Interfaces

Processing sensor data and other mission critical data requires reliable rugged interfaces. Transport your avionic sensor data with a scalable network interface solution from New Wave DV. Our solutions support a variety of protocols for your embedded systems.

Embedded system interfacing requires demanding sensor preprocessing and real-time data distribution. New Wave DV’s high-bandwidth embedded NIC solutions stand up in the most rugged environments. Our network interface cards are built to VITA 47 ECC4 specifications for operation in temperatures from -40°C to 100°C while handling the shock and vibrations of an aircraft. These strict environmental standards are met while maintaining high-reliability (MTBF).

Embedded System Interfacing Capabilities

Embedded avionic applications require tremendous processing of sensor data that is vital to the pilot and mission. Preprocessing this vast amount of information in the network interface allows the other processors to focus on the mission at hand. The ability to filter, remove headers, decimate, and sort the data for the processor(s) is especially useful in C4ISR applications, such as:

Mission System Modules:

  • Mission Computer
  • RADAR
  • Distributed Aperture System (DAS)
  • Electro-Optical Targeting System (EOTS)
  • Global Positioning System (GPS)
  • Inertial Navigation System (INS)
  • Counter Measures (CM)
  • Electronic Warfare (EW)
  • Communications Navigation Identification (CNI)
  • Display Management Computer (DMC)

Vehicle-System Modules:

  • Vehicle Management Computer (VMC)
  • Prognostics and Health Management (PHM)
  • Flight Control Systems (FCS)
  • Air Data System (ADS)
